The final project in my game engine development class is to, of course, build a game.
I was hoping for some ideas from the community to help me out. I have to basically have the entire game planned out before class this Tuesday, so I can give a presentation on the game idea, so this will be a brief collection of ideas.
Here’s some restrictions:
- I have about 3 weeks total to work on it. I’m just one man.
- This is a 2D game.
- I need to use light sources.
- Based on engine physics limitations, the game world will likely be top-down, or in other words, the characters will have all four directions of movement, rather than being pulled down to the bottom of the screen by gravity. e.g. In the style of Galaga, compared to Mario.
- I can’t have guns or bullets (but apparently someone had an icecream truck shoot sharp-looking ice cream cones at kids last quarter, and they didn’t get punished, so… we can be creative).
If I can finish my game and it’s functional, then it will be posted on a website, and I will share a link to it from here so that you can revel in my crappy game designing skills.
Please help me brainstorm!
